This entry will cause problems. You must give the path to the firmware 
filename, not the device name. E.g. if you copied your firmware file 
to /etc/acer/u96v121.bin the entry should read

firmware /etc/acer/u96v121.bin

> # If not automatically found you may manually specify a device
> name.
> # For USB scanners also specify bus=usb, e.g.
>  /dev/usb/scanner0 bus=usb

You can comment out this entry, your scanner will be found 
automatically. If you leave it in remove the blank at the beginning 
of the line.
